Fourth set of R foils

The first non Canterbury set of foils will be started on soon

Progress is going well on the foil building programme with 2 foiling boats now on the water. Jess Hix and Paul Roe launched TheVirtual on the first prepreg set of foils last weekend. David Pairman is nearing completion of the Merde's set of foils, and then he's just got to fit them to the boat, there's a bit more work to ready a woof than the L3's, but how hard can it be?

Hopefully within the next week the fourth set will be started for a North Island boat. The fifth and sixth sets are committed locally and then we're out of prepreg. There are several more boats keen to proceed so its time to look at getting some more carbon!
